Q: How are people actually voting for in China?

I heard people in China get the chance to vote at one point or another, but most often don't really know who those people are. Are they even real?

The voting procedure in China is a complex system with many layers (or committees) in between.  You do vote directly for persons to represent you at the local level.  Then those elected form a committee and deliberate to name one of them as their representative on a higher one.  And thus, goes from local level, to municipal level, to province level, and finally arrive to the central government.  But there, it is not only one committee, but at least three more in ascending authority.  And finally, the top one will select officials to become President, Premier, and all other top positions. 

Those selected will serve for 10 years, and can not run for re-election once their term expires. 

Please bear in mind that I tried hard to simplify a very complex procedure as much as possible so it could be easily undertood.

That's basically my understanding of it too, minus mentions of bribery and corruption all the way up.

My understanding is that you can vote people out, not in.

China is basing their new election model on American Democracy.

 

The votes will be counted by Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold) using the world's most accurate electronic methods. In order to protect voter confidentiality, no record of votes will be kept and the system is impossible to audit.

Nobody gets to vote in China! The government appoints who goes to office not the local commoners.

A:Hear me out on this before calling me crazy - First of all, I am not praising the Chinese healthcare system. It is well-known that most doctors are unqualified (I work for a medical school and my boss estimates that 90% of doctors in the mainland are unqualified). Doctors regularly engage in overtreatment while running unnecessary tests and prescribing useless medicine. Antibiotics are grossly overprescribed and the the number of patients given unnecessary IV's is laughable.  These criticisms acknowledged, there is a certain efficiency in the system. When you need to see a doctor, there's no need to make an appointment. You go to the hospital, line up and within 20-30 minutes you can usually be seen by a doc. If tests are needed, you can quickly have the tests right then and there. Compare that to the systems in may western countries where you often have to wait lengthy periods of time to see a doctor. Then, when the doctor prescribes a test you have to wait an additional  time for that, it often takes longer to get the results and many doctors aren't even taking new patients in America due to the shortage of primary care physicians and certain specialists. I'm not saying the healthcare system in China is exemplary but it is efficient and generally meets the basic needs of a massive and mostly poor population in spite of its major shortcomings. It would be nice if doctors were more accessible in America at least.  -- dongbeiren
